Exercising one’s freedom of speech, entails posing troublesome questions. Do Jews run the world? Do Mongoloid men have small penises? Are most women frigid, and when need be, sluts? Are negroes daft, inept, and dumb? Are all Germans sadist perverts?
Not one of these questions is entitled to an open discussion. Exactly why, isn’t altogether clear. Especially when considering the evidence.
Let’s stick to negroes, and the beguiling issue of an IQ quotient – today’s common measure of “intelligence”.
Statistically low IQ results are constant for all negroes in the New World, and for all the inhabitants of black Africa. Compared to other races, there is no way around the fact, that negroes are – well- stupid.
There are three mainstream interpretations of this stupidity. The politically correct, the suppressed, and the black. The latter has already been identified in “A Central Problem of Blackness”, and is associated with the Black Inferiority Complex (BIC). The first two, take the following shape.
The politically correct explanations of lagging negroe IQ scores are the cultural prejudice of IQ tests, the tenuous relationship between the g-coefficient and actual “intelligence,” economic disparities between the races, the “stereotype threat,” and white supremacy.
The suppressed explanation, verboten in most societies with significant black populations, is that low IQ scores are the result of racial inferiority. Although vocalization is limited to the social confines of overachieving minorities, it enjoys a great deal of implicit popularity within mainstream society.
One central issue is hopelessly confused in both explanations, as is the case in virtually any discussion of human intelligence. The relationship between heritability, and intelligence.
The facts are simple. Intelligence is about 50 percent heritable, and 50 percent environmental. Many take this to mean, that half of one’s IQ score, comes from one’s parents. Twin studies, argue in their favor. A wider definition of heritability, argues against them. The facts are simple, but they can not be interpreted simply.
Geneticists have no definition of human intelligence. Heritability is not limited to DNA. A significant portion of it is environmentally dependent. Whether in the form of mechanism described by epigenetics, or environmental factors transmitted from generation to generation in social, economic, and cultural terms. Due to severe constraints on population size, twin studies cannot distinguish between genetic heritability, and environmental.
Conflating IQ results with genetics, is the greatest failure of the Watsons, Lynns, and Murrays. Blacks are the dregs of global society. Hailing from pervasive illiteracy, with zero intellectual tradition, black culture, in as much as it is allowed to assert its negritude in opposition to the non-black, reproduces all the shortcomings of the savage. Each and every negro pays the price – in an average black IQ score, worthy of the stone-age.
This says nothing about the genetic potential of blacks. One can ask whether poor cultural pressure doesn’t have a deleterious evolutionary impact, but claiming that an IQ average of 80 can be explained by a few codons – is ignorant.
The politically correct explanations for an IQ of 80 are at least partially correct. In as much as IQ tests require literacy, they are biased against the illiterate. In as much as the Flynn effect exists, people’s genes do not change, while IQ scores do. The Stereotype threat, while itself inadequate, exposes our limited knowledge of psychological factors in cognitive performance. World-wide negroes are impoverished, and without educational means. Their society, and culture, reflect both.
To some, this is bona fida proof of black genetic inferiority. With physical prowess taken into account, negro crime rates are the nails in the pall. Caveat emptor with hasty conclusions. Nearly all white crimes of violence are committed by lower-class whites. Moscow is a crime capital, and most drug related crimes are committed by non-blacks abroad. As professional boxing and the Olympics prove, physical prowess is both a white, and asian attribute. More relevant – there do not exist significantly large communities of whites, anywhere in the world, who posses the disadvantage of illiterate poverty. Even when poor, whites and asians belong to a racial community whose culture of daily routine reflects millennia of numeracy, and literacy. Even if individual members can not read, their treatment of the Bible, or contractual relationships, are non-verbal, and un-emotional in accordance with societies in which elites rely on writing. The noted has ways of influencing the uttered.
A final argument for the genetic determinant of Black stupidity, is genius. Where are the black 150s, ask the Indians, Jews, Parsis, and Armenians, brandishing their MENSA cards like burnished swords.
The absence of proof, is not proof of absence. Nor is affirmative action, evidence that blacks can not make it on their own (rather the opposite, it is the reason blacks are not allowed to make it on their own).
The distribution of genius, is obvious. A solid majority of high IQs, belong to peoples of the Indo-European and Semitic cultural traditions. When one considers the kind of epistemic communities to which these Western Eurasians belong – the presence of genius is no mystery. The earliest such tradition is religious, and it explains the disparity not only between West Eurasians and East Eurasians, but blacks and non-blacks.
Blacks comprise the single biggest genetic grouping lacking literacy, and the price this exacts on IQ tests, is paid by each and every negro. Intellectual circles, wherein literacy makes its indirect contribution to the structure of popular culture, via the vehicle of the scholarly epistemic community, are a novelty for the negro even of the 21st century. Black intellectuals can be listed in ten pages, comprising largely the heads of black civic and religious groups dedicated to racial self-assertion. This is literacy, not genetics.
The Nation of Islam, in its critical output, is more literate than either the Black Baptist Church, or NAACP, but its Islamism limits its social impact. The Black congressional caucus, exists by virtue of black illiteracy, not in virtue of black knowledge. Negro professors, are exclusively part of the Racial Talk circuit. When Blacks are not prominent for sports, and music, they are prominent for being black. Epistemic communities, unaffiliated with racial politics, seem entirely or wholly absent. Black students, are virtually absent from science majors, and black graduate students only write theses on Racism, when traditional black colleges are discounted.
There is a vicious circle of not having intellectual epistemic communities, and hence not being able to generate them, of not being able to generate them, hence not having them. Some will claim this is further proof of black genetic inferiority. But where’s the “proof?”
Again, three variables are at play – epistemic community, literacy, and culture. Discrimination (affirmative action) favors slackers, and along with post-modern studies, creates pseudo-epistemic communities incapable of integrating into non-ethnic sciences. This leaves them uncompetitive, isolated, and hence transient. It is the story of the black intellectual movement – incapable of making notable contributions to mainstream society, and cultural amelioration for blacks.
Two thousand years ago, the inhabitants of “barbarian” Europe, were illiterate, barbaric idiots. They served as slaves, and only gradually, integrated writing. When they did so, their society began producing epistemic communities, which civilised the primitive instinct, and harnessed it towards productive ends. These were the Germanic tribes, and their offspring today pride themselves on their intellect, not on their ancestors savagery evidenced in bog-murders, sacrifice, and even cannibalism.
A thousand two hundred years ago, the Eastern Slavs, still had no writing, and Arab travellers described their primitiveness on par with black Africans. Like negroes, Slavs served as the source of chattel labour in Eurasia, and North Africa. Slaves in Muslim Iberia, and Carolingian Holy Roman Empire, were majority Slavs. Hence the word – for slave, originates from the ethnonym. The relatively late arrival of writing in Eastern Europe, remains in evidence in the liturgy of the Orthodox. Focused less on content, more on experience, and mysticism.
Today, it is the negroes turn to assimilate literacy, and shape his culture accordingly. Latin arrogance against Germans persisted for centuries after the fall of Rome, and Germanic haughtiness vis a vis Slavs is still current. The assumption that black stupidity today, reflects genetics, will remain with us for some time.
It is imperative, that the system, and blacks themselves, do not succumb to this illusion. The Germans and Slavs mistrusted the written word for some time after its introduction, the greater the emphasis on discrimination which implies that blacks cannot advance without diminishing standards for intellectual achievement, the more this reflects mistrust of literacy.
Due to their mistrust, prior to Carolus Magnus, Germanic tribes had no patron of the letters. The Slavs, found their patronage in Byzantium, but over-dependence exposed them to rupture when Byzantium waned. The time it took to advance economically, was significantly retarded by the opposition of social groups, adhering to analphabetistic culture. It’s no exaggeration to claim, that they had their own version of Rap, to keep them down, and their own reputation to defend in feuds and wars, to legitimize the denigration of learning.
The process by which negroes can transform black culture to serve industrial society, is difficult to imagine. But unless black pride and all ethnocentric politics are abandoned, and the superiority of the Euroasian product is embraced, no progress will be possible. The greater the resistance to culture on the grounds of it being “white” or “not-black” the longer the stupidity lasts. The effect of such longevity, will be to make the heritability of black stupidity genetic. Because while blacks stagnate, everyone else, is rushing to advance.
Voltaire, Leibniz, Cato, Averroes, and Maimonides, will have to be consumed by blacks, with abandon. Reference to the author’s skin colour, should either rest irrelevant, or not become the fuel for the BIC, or for discussions. Black learning needs to proceed with possible racial assimilation in mind, and with personal and family advancement, a mantra. As long as social class is sought racially, it will never come.
For the black race, no greater obstacle remains, than the stupidity of black culture. Breaking out of it, requires falling in love with Proust, and learning to feel Schumann, without demanding syncopation. Abandoning the fear of becoming “white” – by seeking to contribute to being “white.” Black culture is rightfully associated with barbarism, and this wont change, until we go beyond blackness, and transcend ourselves.
